Kid Tested, Mother Approved, and 100% Sucka Free

SANTIAGO

| Wednesday, December 10, 2008


I have to share with you guys the breath taking work of a talented artist by the name of Santiago. Again support true talent and let the artist know that they are appreciated. Here are a few pics of his work, links for contact info is below and his bio was taken from his myspace page.





DONT READ THIS! Am I supposed to write fancy things about my accomplishments? I never had an official bio, and I won't start writing a boring one now. Nor will I talk in the third person about what companies and exhibitions I collaborated with. I would rather be genuine and embarrass myself before you with a story. A story about a nerdy kid too shy, socially awkward, and pathetically nervous to talk to pretty girls. So instead, I painted them. Beauty controls the world. All men pursue her; all women admire or strive for her. Even the religions of the world showcase her. Show me a painting of an ugly Virgin Mary, a homeless looking Buddha or an out of shape Hindu Goddess. Instead of being like the cool kids who went out, had social lives and did stuff, I stood home watching Anime, drawing and painting beauty, gathering inspiration from countless sources. Fast forward many years, I am still that nerdy fellow creating provocative visuals blending experimental urban futuristic pinups filled with cultural mash-ups, musical eroticism, deep emotion, robotic fashion forwardness, exotically tanned curvaceous ness with a twist of religious-spiritual-social consciousness. Success for me is simple. At the end of the day the only thing that matters in my "success" as an artist is.... does my art move you? Can you feel my passion through the colors, shapes, textures and concepts that are spilling out my brain for you to enjoy? Thank you for stopping by. Buy my prints -Santi-
